Count Chossula's fluted south face

Description 

Just to the north of the parking area is Count Chossula. It's distinctly fluted south face is steep and striking. Route potential exists on the southwest and southeast faces. While the upper half of the formation is chossy and grainy, the lower half is characterized by a darker patina that will probably clean up nicely with repeated ascents.

about 20 feet to the right of the obvious chimney. This route climbs a nice hand crack through the low, dark, patinaed section which gives way to steep but grainier climbing through the flutings up to a dike that brought about the formation of three molar-like "teeth." Climb through the teeth to even looser rock and on to the top.Walk off the top to the northwest....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
